2024 Upgrades

We recently upgraded our entire hosting environment which entailed a move from an older cloud environment to a more current state-of-the-art environment featuring dual firewalls. This new environment is more robust and will leave more room for scalability in the coming years. As part of this move all our servers have been upgraded from running on Windows 2012 to be running on Windows 2019. Our ColdFusion instances have also been upgraded from ColdFusion 2016 to be running on ColdFusion 2021. These software upgrades bring with them improvements in security, performance, and reliability as well as keep the software within the vendors current lifecycle for continued patching, upgrades, and support.
